Children

You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
- Lois McMaster Bujold
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

2.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

3.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

4.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Jordan, June

5.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

6.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

7.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

8.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

9.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

10.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

11.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

12.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

13.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Tracy, Brian

14.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

15.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Gibran, Kahlil

16.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel

17.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Larkin, Philip

18.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Josh Lieb

19.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

20.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

21.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

22.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

23.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

24.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

25.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Wilder, Thornton

26.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

27.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

28.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

29.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Taylor, Jeremy

30.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham

31.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

32.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
Lamb, Charles

33.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

34.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

35.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

36.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

37.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

38.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

39.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

40.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

41.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

42.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

43.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

44.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

45.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

46.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

47.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

48.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

49.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

50.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb
